    facts are facts and our civilized world will crash. I was talking to a couple young hikers last week and they got to talking about retiring 30 years on and having nest eggs. Wishful thinking my dears, unless those eggs are coming from your chickens.

    My feeling is that the financial empires will collapse before the worst environmental disasters hit and political calamity will ensue. Guess you could call them the 3 handmaidens of our destruction.

    I love George Takei for being aware and honest and sharing. And "the best damn pilot in the universe."

      However it could go the other way and climate alteration cause the collapse of the financial empires.  In my opinion, for what it is worth, they have way too much faith that they will be able to survive the chaos that will result from global climate change.  In many ways the Republican wishful thinking about the 2012 election is an example of such selfish optimism.
